Message from Ethan Brand '08 to Longtime Team Member SgtMaj Hofer


"I wanted to contact you and give you my utmost and respectful thanks. At the time when we were still kids at 17/18, most if not all of us did not have the ears and stomach to hear and digest the lessons, insight, and wisdom that you passed onto us. But I saved it for later. Over the years I have thought back often to those nights you spent with us in the mess hall imparting wisdom, discipline, and advice to us, and perhaps you may have thought it was falling on deaf ears. It did not. You have an impact on those kids that may be exasperating at the time like it was with us, but I assure you it comes full circle.


It was an honor to have a role model and mentor like you at that age. 99% of the population does not have that luxury. You have a major positive impact on all those kids at that school whether they reach out to you later in life like I have or not. After I had my firsthand experience of combat, warfare, loss, and tenacity through impossible odds, I began to finally absorb and embrace the words you passed onto us years before."

Tigers Swim Team Secures VIC Championship!


On Tuesday 2/16/21, the Hargrave Tigers hosted the VIC/BRC Swimming and Diving Championships and emerged victorious, securing their 12th VIC title and their first since 2015!

In a year that has been anything but normal, considering the Tigers started their season with an all-virtual meet, the energy was teeming throughout the ODAC on Tuesday afternoon as six schools made their way to Chatham to compete in the latest rendition of the VIC/BRC Swimming and Diving Championships. On the VIC side, Hargrave had swam against each conference school throughout the regular season and found success but after a string of three straight 2nd Place finishes in the championship meet, the Tigers were more determined than ever to seal the deal and take home the title.


Head Coach Amanda Weishaar earned the honors of VIC Coach of the Year for her outstanding effort in preparing these young men to become champions! Noted Weishaar, "From the beginning, I said to my swimmers `Give me 100% and come in last and I'll be the happiest coach. Give me 80% and set a State record, I'll be one very upset coach!'. Last night everyone gave 100% and left nothing on the table. I couldn't have been more proud of them becoming a team and supporting one another. Last night was a testament to their commitment and faith in each other, themselves and the process!"

Hargrave PG Basketball Undefeated and Ranked Second in the Nation




Hargrave Military Academy has been rolling in 2020-21, racking up a 20-0 record behind a red-hot offensive unit. The Tiger have scored more than 100 points on 12 separate occasions, and currently average over 112 points per game under head coach Thomas Messinger.


Seniors Jackie Johnson and Ijomah Ezuma (13.2 PPG, 78% FG, 9.2 RPG, 2.1 BPG) have been picking up college offers left and right, while fellow seniors Jordan Battle and Tyler Beard have shined in the backcourt. Big men Will Felton (Arizona State commit) and Matt Nunez have also been highly-productive for Messinger's frontcourt, with the latter coming on as an intriguing prospect in the 2022 class. Hargrave will likely cruise into March with an undefeated record, and we will be clamoring for a matchup against No. 1 IMG.
